9.3.10 Application defined scheduling

The International Real-Time Ada Workshops have been a source of suggestions for improvements to Ada. The Workshop at Oporto suggested a number of further scheduling algorithms [12]. Most of these such as Round Robin and EDF have been included in Ada 2005. But that for application defined scheduling (AI-358) was not.
The reason is perhaps that it was felt desirable to see how those that had been included worked out before adding yet more burden for implementers.
